2014 EMPLOYEE EXCELLENCE AWARD RECIPIENT:
Communications Dispatcher II
Jean-Pierre, or JP as he is known, began his career with the County on April 1, 2003. He is a dedicated 9-1-1 professional who conducts himself with honesty and integrity and now has over ten years of efficient, effective, quality service demonstrating a sincere regard for the community we serve. JP exhibits dependability and commitment on a daily basis while processing his share of the over 1100 calls we receive each day and dispatching law enforcement and emergency medical services resources.
As a Communications Training Officer, JP has experienced the rewarding feeling of helping many employees transition from nervous newcomers to confident, independent journey-level dispatchers. He has developed many training aids and tests to strengthen and solidify new trainees’ knowledge and skills. JP has just recently completed a new, innovative training aid that all Communications Training Officers will use to ensure comprehensive, uniform training. Recognizing JP for the Employee Excellence Award is a fitting tribute for his continued contributions and commitment to the Department’s public safety mission and the County’s core values.
JP Rusterholtz is married with 3 children, a huge NFL fan, a history buff, and an avid gardener.
